This year the concert took place on Saturday 16th December 2017. We estimate that we raised over £3,000 for our chosen charity this year. Many thanks to everyone who bought tickets, came along and enjoyed a wonderful selection of carols, songs and music. This is a great tradition in Southwell and we look forward to repeating it again in 12 months time.
This year the beneficiary is an overseas choice.As usual, we were looking fora project that would not happen without the proceeds of the concert andwitha local connection. With that in mind, the Southwell Lions CfEcommittee selected the bid by "Tools for Self Reliance" group. The proceeds will go towardsavocationaltrainingproject for40 young people inZambia.This will be a life changing opportunity for therecipients.Southwellhas a very strong and active Tools for Self Reliance group, collecting, restoring and shipping tools to Africa.
